We’ve spent a week with the latest patch, 5.5, and have done quite a lot in it. We’ve got impressions of the NieR raid, the new Diamond Weapon fights (regular and extreme), Leviathan and, most important of all, ocean fishing! We won’t discuss the main storyline in this episode, but beware spoilers for both the weapon questline and the NieR quests (here’s a spoiler: we didn’t like the dwarves very much.)


Christina Zammarrelli

Gaming has been a core part throughout Poptarts life. Though her specialty is JRPGs, she tries to branch out and try new things. Most of her time gets put into the MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV, but she still finds time to play new games.

Chip Locke

Chip has a boring adult day job and then burns as much free time as possible playing the videos james. Fond of a variety of MMOs, JRPGs, and action games without active time button mashing.

Kristen Allison

Began the gaming life with a game boy to be kept entertained during a vacation in the early 90s and forgot to put it down after that. Currently, most gaming time goes into FFXIV. Doing her best to prove she's not a robot.
